  • È considerato uno dei più grandi scultori contemporanei italiani, molto noto ed apprezzato anche all'estero. È fratello del noto scultore Giò Pomodoro. È famoso soprattutto per le particolari sfere di bronzo, il materiale che predilige per le sue opere, che si scompongono, si "rompono" e si aprono davanti allo spettatore, che è portato alla ricerca ed alla scoperta del meccanismo interno, in un contrasto tra la levigatezza perfetta della forma e la complessità nascosta dell'interno.
